The snorkel instructors in our club are all trained at national level with B.S.A.C. There are now three main qualifications in snorkelling instruction. They are: 

  • Assistant Snorkel Instructor - A Snorkel Diver who has received training in pool instructional techniques, at Branch level. They are mainly used to assist the regular instructors with their classes.
  • Snorkel Instructor - For pool training. A Snorkel Diver, minimum age 18 years, who has attended the Snorkel Instructor Training Course and passed the B.S.A.C. Snorkel Instructor assessment.
  • Advanced Snorkel Instructor - for more advanced snorkelling in open sea from boats. A Snorkel Instructor and Snorkel Dive Manager who holds the Advanced Snorkel Lifesaver Award and has taken an Advanced Snorkel Instructor Course at national level and who has passed the subsequent examination.

We also have administration staff members that take care of the club funds and membership issues.

You will also occasionally see guest instructors from "No Tanx" Freedive Club who teach relaxation courses to the older members to assist breath holding.

If you are interested in instructing snorkelling then ask B.S.A.C. or Nick, a Snorkel Instructor Trainer, and they can tell you where to start.
